A Maryland man was killed Friday after driving his Nissan head-on into a 52-passenger charter bus on the Dulles Greenway.

Frank Elliott, 60, of Walkersville, Md., died at the scene. His passengers, two men, were taken to Fairfax Inova Hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries.

None of the passengers on the charter bus or its driver were injured, according to Virginia State Police.

The driver of the charter bus, Norman Pleasant, 48, of Washington, D.C., was arrested on unrelated charges. Pleasant, police said, was wanted by the U.S. Marshal's Office and taken into custody at the scene.

He is being held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.
